Blue Rapids awarded grant for new swimming pool

(KMZA)--The Marshall County community of Blue Rapids has been awarded a more than $760,000 grant for the construction of a new swimming pool.

According to a press release from the Kansas Department of Commerce, Blue Rapids is among 11 communities across the state awarded a special series of Community Development Block Grants.

Blue Rapids was awarded $763,411 in CDBG funds, which will provide 60 percent of the project cost.

The release says the city will use nearly $509,000 in bonds for their matching funds.

The funds will be used to demolish and re-build a zero-entry swimming pool.

Fund raising efforts for the project have been underway for a number of years, with more than $60,000 in donations raised to date.

A construction timeline has not yet been established
